• Short Summary

    Old crocks race is organised in Melbourne - contestants dress for he occasion.

  • Description

    The full title reads "Melbourne AUSTRALIA'S "OLD CROCKS" 22 relics "shake their old bones" in annual run like ours - to Brighton!"

    Melbourne, Australia.

    Several shots of the men dressed in period costume and made up for the occasion - false moustache, beards, make-up etc. - preparing their vintage cars for the start of the old crocks race. Crowds are gathered to watch the race. Various shots of the race. Crocks go very slowly, some break down and the winner is pushed to the finishing line - quite amusing.
